Big holiday home
Do you feel like lots of luxury and space then consider the large holiday home which has all comforts needed and it is completely self catering, This house used to be the “chai” on our property, which is the area where they made the wine. The building has been completely renovated to a spacious and light property of 1500sqft.
All our guests say the same thing when they arrive: “Gosh what a beautiful home, even better than the pictures on the website”, because somehow the pictures don’t do it complete justice.
There is a large open space living room, kitchen with tv and dvd player. From the living room you walk into a large veranda with glass doors all around, where the dining room is. It is the perfect place to wake up in the morning and read your newspaper. The holiday home also has its own private garden with stone bbq, outdoor dining table and sun chairs.
Further there is a double bedroom, a separate toilet and a special room for the children with success guaranteed, because they can sleep in the remainders of the old stone wine barrels. The room is perfect for 2-3 children.
e remain small scaled with 6 tents which all have a slightly different decoration. One tent is a little separate of the other tents for those wishing for even more privacy and the other 5 tents are spread over a field of 1.25 acres. All the tents have superb views over the fields. All have a veranda, privacy and good beds (we sleep on them ourselves). As a cherry on the pie you have your own bathroom only a few steps away.
